Employers should consider introducing flexible working in the coming weeks to allow sports fans to watch the Olympics, experts have said.
Conciliation service Acas issued has issued guidance urging bosses to consider allowing staff to start later or finish early and make up time on different days. They should also be allowed to swap shifts, the advice adds.
Acas chairman Sir Brendan Barber said flexible working agreements could help managers get the best from their teams.
Rio 2016 will be an exciting event for many sports fans but staff should avoid getting disqualified for unreasonable demands or behaviour in the workplace during this period.
Many businesses need to maintain a certain staffing level in order to survive and sprint to that finish line.
Employers should have a set of simple workplace agreements in place before the starting gun goes off for the Olympic Games.
These agreements can help ensure businesses remain productive whilst keeping staff happy too, which are key ingredients for a gold medal winning team line up.
